TaylorMade have unveiled their new P790 irons – part of the globally successful P700-series iron lineup – a forged distance iron that meets the demands of better players and delivers consistent performance for the aspirational golfer.
The P790 irons have been engineered with new SpeedFoam Technology for golfers seeking the forged look and feel of a player’s iron with increased distance, forgiveness and playability.
The P790 is TaylorMade’s answer to the challenge of creating a forged iron that delivers remarkable distance and playability, combined with remarkable feel in a medium-compact head design with a thinner topline and reduced offset preferred by discerning players.
The P790’s hollow cavity uses SpeedFoam Technology, a new proprietary construction which serves a dual purpose of generating ball speed, as well as the management of sound and feel. Injected into the clubhead, SpeedFoam provides the face support and damping properties that make the performance of the P790 unlike any other iron in the TaylorMade family.
The incorporation of the WrapFace creates a cut-thru Speed Pocket on the sole with extreme flexibility in the lower part of the clubface; it’s this flexibility which creates greater forgiveness and consistency than is typically seen in a distance iron design.
The P790 also features an ultra-thin 1.75mm face thickness with re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology optimised for the slightly smaller face area. Whereas the company’s previous ICT, which had a larger, heavier profile, the new, smaller Inverted Cone allows for reduced face thickness at the edges of the face, thus increasing flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface, resulting in more ball speed across the entire face.
For forgiveness and playability, P790 irons feature strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher moment of inertia (MOI).
